I have always been proud of all my children but at certain times they have each done things that make me extremely proud.  Last week was Conor’s turn. He graduated from the Navy Nuclear Power School. Because of a couple of illnesses it took him six months longer than it should have. This was no fault of his own and actually made it a good deal harder as he had lengthy breaks between sessions and an opportunity to forget what he had learned before.

Because the Navy is pushing more students through the system than they have capacity for he now gets to sit and wait for between two and four months before going on to the next phase of training. Hopefully what ever task they find for him to fill the time will be one he enjoys but I know that getting a break from the very long days of study he has been going through will be much welcomed by his wife and son.
